Movies I Watch Again & Again Part 1/2

I have several movies that I love to watch over and over again that are not listed in my top ten musical, drama, or comedy lists that I posted a couple of months ago. Although they are not my ultimate favorites, I just can't help watching them all the time! In the next two posts I will write about the ten movies that I love to watch. I will try to explain why I love each of them, but even I'm not sure why I watch them so much. So, for the first five....

Wife Vs. Secretary (1936)

Starring: Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, Myrna Loy

Why do I love this? Well.....Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, Myrna Loy!!! Three of my all time favorites in one movie. Plus Jimmy Stewart has a small part as Jean Harlow's love interest. The story is a pretty good one, and everyone looks their best!

Easy to Love (1953)

Starring: Esther Williams, Van Johnson

Why do I love this? I have of late become a huge fan of Esther Williams. I received the Esther Williams Collection Vol 2 for Christmas and have already watched this film a few times. It is such a beautiful colorful movie with remarkable costumes.

Moon Over Miami (1941)

Starring: Don Ameche, Betty Grable

Why do I love this? I love Don Ameche and Betty Grable. They are both so fabulous in this movie together. I love to hear the both of them sing too! Other than that, it is a typical light hearted musical/comedy.

Second Honeymoon (1937)

Starring: Tyrone Power, Loretta Young

Why do I love this? TYRONE POWER!!!! Need I say more? I think that he looks his best in this film. I could watch it all day long! I love Loretta Young in this too. She is my favorite actress to be paired with Tyrone. Have I told you that I love him? ;-)

No Man of Her Own (1932)

Starring: Clark Gable, Carole Lombard

Why do I love this? This is the only movie that Clark Gable and Carole Lombard made together. Not only that it is a very good film! They are both wonderful in it, and look great as well.

Stay tuned for my next post where I will list the final five movies that I can watch again and again!


  1. I love Tyrone and Loretta the best in "Love is News" and "Cafe Metropole" and boy, are they gorgeous. Cinecom showed "Cafe Metropole" a few years ago, and it was a big hit, and for the Power tribute in LA in 2008, we showed "Love is News" - and it was the surprise hit of the tribute. Loretta's daughter had never seen it and just loved it.

  2. Mrs. R-

    Those are great movies too! I'm not sure exactly what it is about "Second Honeymoon" that makes me watch it more than the others. I wish that I could have been at the tribute. I'm sure it was amazing!
